Quebecoise vocalist Lynn Véronneau is well-known for her gentle, compelling, warm voice and her love of powerful melodies. Her solo album, Something Cool -- a collection of jazz standards, pop, and blues -- attracted kudos from critics, radio stations and public alike. As a classically trained singer, Lynn brings an effortless technique to her heartfelt interpretations in the jazz style. Lynn has performed throughout Canada, Europe and the US and recorded in her own right and as a session vocalist for others.

Lynn met and performed with her musical soul mate, guitar player, singer/songwriter Ken Avis in Switzerland, before moving to the US. Now they add guitarist David Rosenblatt and drummer Pete Walby to the mix.

Rosenblatt developed his love of Brazilian acoustic guitar as a child living in Rio. He subsequently crafted his sound in Brazil and San Francisco with study and live performance. David's beautiful solo composition, "Opening of Summer," is featured on the new CD.

Ken Avis has devoted himself to exploring blues, jazz and roots music. Ken was the vocalist for five years with the renowned (WC Handy Award winning) Otis Grand blues band and has performed throughout the UK, Europe and the US with various bands.

Washington DC drummer Pete Walby, is steeped in bossa nova, jazz and sartorial elegance and completes the band. Originally from Monterey, California, Pete lived in the middle east before returning to the US and to the DC area.
